  • rRNA removal for RNAseq analysis

    Hi all,

    Do you think we need to filter rRNA and low complexity reads from Poly-A selected total mRNAseq stranded data before performing RNAseq analysis (tophat2-htseq-deseq2)? I am sorry if I have missed any previous post on similar matter.

    Thanks for your help.

    Generally not necessary, but it doesn't really hurt. Also, depending on what GTF file you provide to htseq, rRNAs may be excluded anyways.
